    Kroc Row
    12x90 lb DB on each hand, then 6 or 8x70 lb DB right after

    Pretty good workout today. Didn't take very long but it was really hard and felt like it took forever. My grip is a little biatch and slipped on the 4th rep of 455. Then I did 495 for a single but I went lightheaded at the top and set it down really quickly. I'm 95% sure I got the rep but I'm also 95% sure I didn't hold it for long enough in strict competition. Then I did a drop down set, 3 reps touch n go with relatively slow negatives, switched my grip, then 2 paused at the floor reps, then held for 10 sec at the top. Chins were pretty lame, my chinning strength has gone down a lot. On my third set I tweaked my right bicep because I jumped up to the bar instead of standing on the tip of my toes to reach it, and caught it more with my right. That made everything else today feel weird, my right lat felt like it was working a lot more, probably because my right arm was compromised. On that note, a little tangent, my right arm hit 17 inches around yesterday! But yeah everything else was pretty good, right quad cramped on the second set of 1 leg squats with weight so I dropped it down to no weight. Kroc rows were all right but my grip isn't what it used to be, I used to be able to do 100 lb DBs for 20 reps. Then again that was with my hands caked in chalk instead of lightly dusted like now, back when I weighed 215 in high school. I was 198 today, and my biceps are bigger now, so I'm not too disappointed.

    Also found out I have a kidney problem, got a blood test last week and my vitamin D is very low and my creatinine is very high, my pee is very bubbly. So I'm discontinuing the creatine. Now I"m forced to train 2 days on 1 day off because of limited recovery. That's fine though, still a lot of volume and bodybuilding work. I just hope I can keep my arms around 17 inches, but we'll see! But the kidney problem explains why I've always carried so much water, I bought a vitamin D supp and a kidney support supp which should be arriving in the mail this week hopefully, so we'll see how that goes. Triceps/shoulders tomorrow.

    4-5-13: Triceps/Shoulders

    Close Grip Bench
    3x6x200
    12x200

    Behind Neck Press
    15x65
    2x12x65

    Bradford Press
    10x65

    DB Upright Rows
    5x12x30s 1 of the 5 sets was done with 35s and then a 6th set of 12 was done with 25s. Did side raises to finish exhausting the side delt after the last 3 sets.

    Behind Neck DB Tricep Ext
    3x10

    Overhead Cable Tricep Ext Leaning
    3x10

    Pretty good workout today. Worked out with a friend I never work out with, but always eat with and always see at the gym, which was pretty fun. He showed me some good tricep movements. I'm definitely going to start incorporating the overhead cable tricep ext leaning because I've never done anything that I felt in the long head of my triceps so much. This might be the thing I'm lacking on my bench press because my triceps were the same strength as his and he was only benching like 60-70% of what I was, and he weighs 163. I'm going to do them bodybuilding style for the next month, then powerlifting style in may, then load up creatine in June and max out on June 8th, my birthday, again. CG bench was good, I was pretty happy with getting 200 for 12 on the thick bar. I feel like I've gotten a lot better at my bench set up, I'm able to get my upper back way tighter and by pressing my head into the bench I am a much harder force pushing against the bar. BTN press was terrible, I think I'm going to rotate this with bradford press because whenever I do this 2 weeks in a row it always kills my shoulders, in a bad way. So I'm doing bradford press next week then BTN the week after that. DB upright rows were really good, got a crazy side delt and traps pump. Unfortunately since I'm coming down from the creatine I don't look as big as I have the last week and a half, but still I looked damn good. The DB tricep exts were hurting my elbows but the cable one was amazing, never gotten a tricep pump like that before. Definitely going to do that for volume, learn the movement, then start incorporating that the way I said. Went and got cake and 3 glasses of milk afterwards so I'm all carbed up. Taking tomorrow off then training again on Saturday.

    Run
    8.5 min mile (started with walking so it was more like running .98 miles in 8 mins, after walking for 30 sec)

    Pretty good day today. Feelin a bit drained from partying all day yesterday (this is my school last year on this weekend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMPP-FrAx0k), but I managed to get a front squat PR and impress a lifting buddy who usually doesn't get impressed by my lifts. Good stuff, helped him with his front squat technique a bit too. Squats were good, I had it in my mind I'd either do 2x10x275 or that I'd do 1x12x275, so after grinding up 10 reps I was like "this hurts like a fucking bitch, I don't want to have to do this again!", so I just did 2 more reps, which, while painful, were not as painful as doing another set. Maybe next week I'll do 2x10x285, I need the sets across/volume type work, even if it hurts. And by hurt I don't mean injury type pains, I just mean that burn you get from squatting high reps. Dat burn.

    Did preacher curls for the first time in... ever I think, besides the preacher curl machine I messed around with when I first started lifting 3.5 yrs ago. I like them, I was planning on going heavy as per the inspiration of CT fletcher, but I decided I would treat them just like the tricep extensions where I'm gonna just do volume work the first month so I can learn how to do the movement and activate the right muscles when I go heavy, and prepare my tendons for the heavier loads. Calves seem to have gotten much stronger recently, and they're a lot harder and better looking. They're 16.25 inches, not sure if that's better or worse than before, but I remember them being 17 when I weighed 215 I think. Wrist roller was fun, I think my forearms got stronger too. Good stuff. Unfortunately my arms have come down from 17 to 16.75, and my forearms have come down from 12.5 to 12.25, since I've discontinued creatine. My shoulders look much narrower/smaller too. But I think if I keep lifting bodybuilding style for a few more months I'll get up there. I've got a huge strength base and very little bodybuilding experience so I can make some good noob gains here, already my arms are .25 inches bigger than they were before.

    Pretty good day today. Squats were on fire. I worked out with this guy who's just getting into powerlifting, and was talking between sets with a powerlifter who's been lifting for 15 yrs and squats 510 and deadlifts 600 at 198. He was doing speed deads with 315 and I've never seen 3 bills move that fast. I did my 3rd rep with 355 paused and grinded it up, felt like I had maybe one more, then the 510 squatter guy came and stood behind me ready to spot and said do another. I grinded up a 4th rep and he was like "nice!" and I growl "FIVE!!!", then get down and do a nice bouncy (not so controlled at the bottom and obviously no pause but who cares, still competition legal), good technique, grinder 5th rep. I growl "FUCK YEAH" and rack it and get props all around. Good stuff. Then I lifted a bunch of light weights and looked like a bitch but that's ok because that's bodybuilding work! For real though, got a good arm pump, left bicep tendon has been a bit testy but getting blood thru it made it a lot less sore than it's been these last 2 days. Got a good pump in the lower body too, forgot to hit abs but whatever. Shoulders tomorrow.

    Maybe something else. Pretty shitty day today. Incline Bench my traps cramped bigtime out of nowhere. My right trap is still killing me 4 hours later. Idk what happened. Gotta keep my upper back more flexible as I gain size. Otherwise got a huge pump in my delts since I couldn't use my traps. Everything else was ok but I was just bummed that 1, my OHP has gotten weak as fuck, 2, my traps got possibly injured. I'll figure it out.

    Ego Bicep thing
    worked up to a drop set of 10x40, 10x25

    Decent Day today. Warmed up my trap by doing some rows before deads and actually managed to not have any trap pain. Deads were pretty weak but I decided if I couldn't do 1 heavy set might as well do sets across to get some technique practice and get some work in. Then continued barbell rows, went pretty well. Tried to do weighted chins, did a few small sets but it just feels shitty as fuck. I guess I'm gonna keep those out for a while, maybe add them back in when I do 5/3/1 again. In the mean time to maintain my vertical back strength I'll do pull ups between sets of pressing stuff. Decided to do lat pulldowns instead and they went decently, weight is embarrassingly low but whatever. Cable Rows also low weight but I guess this shows how weak my back really is. I always thought I had a strong back because I could deadlift and weighted chin a lot but I think it's worth it for me to get up my strength on my miscellaneous back and bicep stuff to balance out my relatively strong pressing power. It should benefit my bench, OHP, and deadlift a lot too. Then I did the ego bicep thing where you take 2 cables, one on each side, and do a front double bicep pose with the weight, pretty good bicep exercise actually, and fun to do too. Nothing like watching them bi's swell up in the mirror. Overall I got a solid workout, even if the poundages are a little weak. Hitting triceps and shoulders tomorrow. I feel like even though I'm losing weight and getting weaker, I look a lot bigger. Probably because my shoulders and biceps, since I've started htiting them directly, have become a lot bigger. All I can do is train hard, maintain my cardio, and eat as much clean food as I can, no use worrying about stuff, I'll see where this path takes me and change anything if necessary.

    Tricep Kickbacks
    3x10x10s

    Ok Day today. My strength seems to be going down. Maybe because my diet was off this weekend, only weighed 195 at the gym today. Leaning out a bit but yesterday for some reason I looked bloated as fuck, most bloated I've been in a while. Trap was bothering me just a little on bench, not at all on BTN press oddly enough. Tricep Pushdowns I actually managed to get a good contraction in the long head, DB upright rows were great, but then overhead tricep thing I was having a lot of trouble feeling it well. Seated side raises went great, my side delts are definitely way bigger and stronger than they were a few weeks ago. Tricep kickbacks were all right, can't really say much for that haha. Overall, my assistance exercises seem to be going up, my strength exercises seem to be going down. But my assistance movements are going up faster than my main lifts are going down so it might be worth it. I definitely need to bring up a lot of weak areas, namely rear/side delts, triceps, back, forearms, and they're all coming up, hopefully once I get on 5/3/1 again this summer this will help my main lifts take off again! At the very least I"ll have a better physique at the end of all this.

    4-18-13: Squats and Arms

    Front Squat
    worked up to 6x275 which is a 1 rep PR

    Squat
    5x275
    10x285
    12x285

    Strict Preacher Curl
    4or5x8x75

    Calf Raise
    3x10x120
    2x10x135

    Forearm Roller
    4 or 5 sets with 15 lbs and 1 set of 3 with 10 lbs

    Pretty good day today. Front squats were good, tried for a 7th rep cause I miscounted and thought I only did 5, but my grip started to slip so I had to drop it. Otherwise I had enough strength for it. It made a huge noise and my friend said everybody looked, I didn't see because my head was hung in disappointment with myself but it was funny because the worker came over and told me not to drop it. Guess I'll let it break my wrists next time =P. The dude was eyeing me making sure I didn't do anything sketchy for the rest of my squat workout. On back squats my technique felt really good, no buttwink whatsoever, my friend accused me of only doing 8 reps at the end of my last set so I grinded up 2 more to appease him. Preacher curls were good, I think my biceps are definitely getting stronger finally. They've shrunk to 16.5 though. That's pretty good though considering the last time they were that big without creatine was when I was 20 lbs heavier. Calf raises were good, weight is going up on those and today in class I was looking at my calves and noticed they look a little bigger. Forearm roller I absolutely killed it, I actually looked really big with my shirt on with my forearms all pumped, guess that's one of the missing links that are part of the reason why my upper body looks small. Never gotten a forearm pump that big. Overall a really good day, I went at night and it's definitely different, the gym vibe is different, I feel different (better but lower energy), I like it in some ways and in other ways I don't. I mostly don't thought because it just feels kind of inconvenient, I'd rather train in the middle of my day instead of finishing my school day, relaxing, then having to get my energy back up to train at night. Training upper body tomorrow.

    Not too good of a day today. Felt really weak so just went more for volume on bench. My left shoulder and bicep are so fucked up. I've just looked like shit in the mirror lately, and felt like shit, and been lifting like shit. Might be sleep depravation, the fact I'm sick, or I don't know, but overall things suck right now.

    4-20-13: Deload

    Squat
    5x10x225

    Deadlift
    3x3x315

    Swimming
    about 10 laps (with long ass rest periods!!!)

    Nice little deload today. Feeling pretty beat up. Since it's a lot easier to deload my training than sleep more in the dorms or eat more in the dining halls, I decided to do a deload. The lazy solution, but a solution nonetheless. Decided to swim for cardio, I'm very out of shape, but I'm gonna start swimming a lot more often to help with my flexibility and cardio.

    Decent workout today. This is my first time getting a side delt pump from OHP so that was pretty good, but my OHP is super weak now unfortunately. But I"m starting up with better technique I guess which is a plus. I'm hitting it twice a week so hopefully it will get back up to speed. Everything else was good, got a good upper body pump and I"ll probably be pretty sore tomorrow. Overall happy with today's training.

    Deciding not to train today. My legs are still sore and I feel lazy as fuck today so I don't necessarily think it's the best idea. I'll be squatting at the beginning of my upper body workout tomorrow instead.

    Swimming
    Till I was breathing hard and practically cramping, which actually is a lot less than it sounds like cause I'm really out of shape lol

    Pretty good day today, felt really strong on bench, looks like all that tricep work is finally paying off. Also helps my BW is kind of moving up, sitting around 201 right now ever since I've added cake/ice cream post workout on workout days (after giving my GH secretion time to work before bombarding myself with insulin). Pendlays were good too, 205 was kind of a freak show, I felt it more in my lats than anywhere else and a lot in the upper back, admittedly a little in the lower back and hips too, but it's fine for the purpose I'm using this for, trying to forcefully activate everything in my back, and I made up for it with a few better sets. Inclines were decent, wasn't weak or strong on these, maybe a little weak but I'm not worried about it. Swimming was good, did only a few laps with really long rest periods but got a good cardio workout and got blood flowing through my whole body, definitely feel my muscles working and lengthening out when I swim. Overall a good day, though I ran out of time and didn't get to do all the lifts I had planned. It's my fault for getting there 45 mins late, no big deal.

    Also forgot to mention I did 4 or 5 sets of 8 chins between sets of inclines. Just had a massive breakfast, swimming definitely helps get my appetite up, even the next day!

    4-28-13: Hungover Shoulder Beast

    Whole stack 3x12

    Rear Side Raise Complex
    4x10x25s
    12x15s

    Pretty damn good day today. Felt really hungover but I watched some branch warren videos, popped an ephedrine, and beasted it at the gym. I looked like a bodybuilder today, I was one of the biggest and leanest, probably the most impressive physique at the gym, which is not common since there's a lot of well built guys at the gym. I had a massive pump, I looked like a statue of a mythical warrior. Ok a bit of an exaggeration but I felt awesome. OHP was done with constant tension, pretty good for my volume day. RD flyes I'm really starting to be able to feel the rdelt contraction now. Rev curls were pretty intense, triceps were ok but a little frustrating, face pulls I gotta find a new machine cause the whole stack is almost nothing to me, and of course my rear/side raise complex made me feel beast as fuck. Dat pump. Looks like I didn't do actually as much as I felt I did but either way this was a sick workout, I feel good about myself !

    Pretty good workout today. Been lazy lately and not been going to the gym a lot but this was a good way to kick my ass back into it. Went nice and heavy on fronts, repped out 300 on back squat, then hit the mirror muscles real quick. Not training tomorrow, maybe I"ll do cardio, then doing bench/deads on thurs. Probably gonna go back to Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri 5/3/1 or Sun/Mon/Weds/Thurs when I get the chance, the 6 days a week thing isn't working out with school, too many days where I just can't workout.

    5-2-13: Bench/Deads

    Bench

    5x235
    5x245
    6x225
    8x225 paused last rep

    Deads
    worked up to 4x455

    Deadlift Rows
    8x225 cheat as fuck
    5x12x135

    Attempt to work chest
    "almost" tore my left shoulder

    Pretty good day today. Was impressed with the amount of weight I was able to lift considering I've looked small lately. Then again I took 1 tribulis pill just for fun yesterday, dosage is 1-2 pills per day, so just a tiny dose, been horny since about 1 hour after I took it, and felt really high test. So maybe that contributed in some way. Or not, Idk. But yeah bench went well, deads went well too, according to my friend I had no back rounding on 455 except barely the last rep which is really good. Rows were good too, but then I tried to work my chest, got it a little sore but my left shoulder felt like it was gonna tear. I gotta find a way to fix my overactive left front delt. But still, really good day today. Going back to 5/3/1 starting next week though, I've been way too undisciplined with this more "by feel" routine. I need structure or I start to slack off.
